DETROIT (WWJ) – Over a dozen Southeast Michigan Family Dollar stores are closing their doors, including five in the city of Detroit.

They’re part of a total of 323 stores nationwide that have been sold to competitor Dollar General, according to the Michigan Workforce Development Agency.

The following stores are included:

  • 10220 Gratiot, Detroit
  • 4705 Conner, Detroit
  • 12815 Jefferson, Detroit
  • 6365 W. Vernor, Detroit
  • 1727 E. State Fair, Detroit
  • 14686 Telegraph, Taylor
  • 22100 Coolidge, Oak Park

  • 1918 Venoy, Westland

  • 20900 Gratiot, Eastpointe
  • 14101 Woodward, Highland Park

Stores elsewhere in Michigan — in Benton Harbor, Grand Rapids, Wyoming, Mount Morris, Holland, Portage, Burton and Saginaw are also slated to close.

Dollar Express, a North Carolina firm that had been operating the stores under the Family Dollar name, says 126 Family Dollar employees will be laid off as a result of the closures, — which will all take effect in June.

Supermarket News reports some of the shuttered Family Dollar stores may reopen under the Dollar General name.
